Excerpt: These are some great sounding Headphones. They are very natural and have nice smooth silky high end. The low end is present, but not over exagerated. The headphones fit on my head well, and don't squeeze. so i don't have a headache after and hour of use.
Excerpt: These headphones have a beautiful middle range and I'm sure after some breaking in the low and high would have been great. Unfortunately, these headphones have a self-adjusting strap that makes them uncomfortable after just a few minutes. Perhaps I have a sensitive head, but these had to go back.
Summary: I have enjoyed using these headphones for playing a piano. However, they once or twice fell on the floor, and all of a sudden one side stopped functioning and they turned mono, left ear only. Since I am a lot into DIY, I opened them to fix them. I did not like what I saw. OMG!
Excerpt: I use it now for 2 months. What I like the most, its design, its trslger weight, comfort (very good!) Reasonable price. I have a Sony MDR-7506 for many years, and I was looking for a second headphone complment to the monitoring / mixing in a semi-professional studio environment.
Summary: bought these largely guided by other reviews. the sound is pretty good although i think with hindsight i would get open ones. don't like the auto mute when you take them off which i only became aware of when it was too late, via another reviewer who also thought this a bad idea.
Summary: Very comfortable with a nice clamp (coming from a senn head-vice user), especially so with the velour pads. Fairly neutral sound, slight emphasis on higher vocal region. Very open sounding even when compared to similarly priced open-backs.
Summary: I wouldn't say these are particularly neutral, as after an admittedly short listen (they're a gift), there seems to be a significant bias to midrange. Cranking the bass and treble controls on my amp made them sound a lot flatter, and then they had a quite pleasant sound.
Summary: Comfortable and light but very quiet, minimal low ends, the plastic feels cheap. Overral sound quality is a lot clearer than your normal shop floor headphones in this price range. I dunno, I just expected better considering the reviews.

Summary: Na verschillende jaren sennheiser te hebben gebruikt wilde ik wel iets anders, en kocht ik op aanraden de AKG K271. Goeie koptelefoon met een zeer neutrale klank, ideaal voor de studio. Aan de heren Deejays geef ik de raad deze koptelefoon niet te kopen.
